With Royal commissions in Brussels, London and Germany, he started his career in Italy, developing know-how in garden design and grottoes with incorporated and clever water hydraulics. “The Principles of Moving Forces”, a publication that became the essential text on hydraulic mechanics and engineering, was authored by him toward the end of his life in France. Classical antiquity hydraulic advancements were outlined as well as revisions to crucial classical antiquity hydraulic breakthroughs in the book. Archimedes, the creator of the water screw, had his work showcased and these integrated a mechanical means to move water.
